No. 1 tells the story of the Latecoere 290 & 298 aircraft. The acquisition and operations of these aircraft in the Aeronavale (French Navy aviation) is told in detail, illustrated with many previously unpublished photos. Color schemes and markings are described and illustrated.


"This is a neat book about these floatplanes. It will be of great interest to aircraft historians and modelers alike."
